Title: Chapter XXI: Moving Day

Over the skies of Carefree, Arizona, Sam Alexander is carrying the last load of belongings to his family's new apartment. Eva Alexander asks him what happened to his father's mini-fridge. Sam explains that things always get broken in a move.

Eva tells Sam he needs to get to school. Her son tells her that he has to go on a very important trip and can't make it to school today. Sam's mother states that he should go quietly, be safe and don't bring home any more gold boulders.

Later above Chitauri Prime, the patrol warships ignore a meteor that is plummeting towards the planet's surface. However, Nova is inside the meteor using it as a shield to escape detection! As the meteor smashes into the ground, Sam flies off towards the coliseum where Jesse Alexander is being held prisoner.

During his flight, Sam reflects on his father. He has come to realize that, while Jesse wasn't a perfect father, he was a great Nova. Sam also realizes how much his father sacrificed in order to take care of his family. Now Nova feels it's his turn to return the favor by rescuing Jesse.

Arriving in the catacombs beneath the arena, Nova quickly attacks two Chitauri guards. One of the guards is able to shoot Sam in the back with an energy weapon. In return, Nova blasts a large section of rock above the guard's head which brings down a large amount of debris on his attacker.

After learning the prisoners are two levels up, the Earth teenager blasts his way through the floors and finds himself facing the warden. The alien smugly states that if Sam wants to talk, he needs to make an appointment with his assistant. The assistant happens to be a gigantic muscular brute who is ready to destroy all visitors.

Nova kicks a high energy burst into the assistant's genitals which immediately drops his attacker to the ground. The alien warden decides his schedule has just found room for an appointment.

He takes Sam Alexander to the cell which imprisoned Jesse Alexander. Jesse is no longer there as the warden explains they recently had a group of inmates escape. Sam does find what appears to be Jesse's crumpled Nova helmet and a message saying he will see his son at home. The warden shows the young hero a holgraphic recording of the breakout.

The hologram shows Jesse leading a group of prisoners and slicing off the arm of a guard. He orders the group to help those who can't walk and instructs everyone to get into an empty Chitauri ship. As the recording ends, the warden explains that the escapees disabled the tracking system before they entered warp.

Suddenly, Nova hears a voice telling him that his father fought bravely. As he begins searching for the person who spoke to him, Sam puts the warden into an empty cell and fuses the bars closed. The Earth hero turns to find the person talking to him was a Chitauri guard. He, and a number of other guards, have been imprisoned for failing to stop the prisoners. Sam says that's too bad and walks away.

Nova stops and turns. He has another idea. A minute and a half later, the free Chitauri guards are running towards another empty vehicle while Nova covers their escape.

Meanwhile, many light years away, Jesse Alexander is addressing his fellow escapees. He explains that there are 119 of them so getting everyone back to their homeworlds will take time. Jesse wants to conserve fuel and plan their route so they can warp to friendly worlds where they can refuel along the way. The aliens don't listen and a giant fight breaks out on the ship. Jesse realizes it's going to be a long trip.

Back on Earth, Nova arrives home. Eva is still awake so Sam shows her the crumpled Nova helmet he found on Chitauri Prime. Her son tells his mom about the Watcher's death and how he discovered his father is still alive. Eva Alexander thanks him for telling him the truth and that he needs to get to school.

At Carefree High School, Principal Filbin explains to Sam that he can't just walk into school, smile and think everything is okay. He has missed too many days of school and has been expelled!
